The FABXLive, this year’s global Fab Lab Network conference, is an online, distributed, FREE conference that gives us an opportunity to stay connected, reflect and engage deeply around Fab Lab and other community responses to COVID-19, the current state of the world and our vision for the future. With more than 2000 Fab Labs in 126 countries worldwide, we will bring together members of the international Fab Lab Network, government representatives, the manufacturing industry, artists, teachers, academic researchers and experts in the field of digital fabrication, to present, envision, innovate, create community, disseminate best practices in digital fabrication and discuss solutions to our world’s challenges during this unprecedented time in history.
The conference dates are July 27-July 31 and registration for the distributed event is FREE. Our new FABxLive member platform will allow us to share, contribute, promote and interact with each other leading up to and during the conference.
Every morning (US EDT) from July 27-July 30 we will host expert panels, keynote speakers and members of our network as they address:
- Coronavirus response from the Network
- Supporting communities
- Rebooting economies
- Emerging futures
On July 31, we will have a GLOBAL FAB DAY, a day dedicated to all of us inventing and imagining locally and together. Fab labs and their regional networks have the opportunity to create local activities, workshops, presentations, fab lab open houses, whatever your community needs and wants, at times that make sense for your part of the world, and we’ll advertise it and promote it to the global community.
Each day of the conference will include Fab World updates as well as a global roster of fantastic, community-led, distributed workshops and discussions in all the time zones of the world. We look forward to providing you with new, unparalleled opportunities to network, to find your FABmily, to learn from one another, and to engage in dialogue that pushes our community goals forward.
